    Search versiontracker.

    Movies are easy--there are a dozen different apps that will rip movies. DVDBackup is my favorite. Games are a different story. On Windows Alcohol 120% is what you want. I don't know what the Mac equivalent is--is there is one. Like I said, search versiontracker.

    Just google it. It's a website. The website is easy to guess also.

    edit: selector, don't quadruple post. All 4 of your posts should have been combined into one post. You should never have more than one post in a row by the same person. Notice how I used the edit feature to add this note in my post, instead of creating a second post.

    Selector, did you feel a breeze? That was Elan0204's message going right over your head.

    Or are you trying to get an avatar your first day?

    Or do you have OCD and have to do everything 4 times?

    These two apps work for me.
    And they're pretty much self explanatory (though you'll also need Roxio's Toast for burning, it's a $90 or so program. And I highly recommend it).

    heres how to do it mate!!!

    1.get MACTHERIPPER(search web)
    2.get DVD2ONEX (search web)
    3.get any TOAST burning program (search web)
    Firstly put your dvd in then open mactheripper you'll see the film in the window at top press go and select a folder where to store the ripped film.
    Secondly open DVD2ONEX and find the film you've ripped press start and save to another folder.
    Just to make sure you-ve done it right open your DVD PLAYER and locate the folder you-ve compressed it will be a VIDEO_TS folder and open it and press play on the dvd player it should play fine.
    Thirdly create a AUDIO_TS folder and put it in the folder with the name of your film and drag it into TOAST and press burn hopefully if you've done it right you will have your own copy of any film you want !
    Good luck mate
